This turned out wonderfully! I made a double batch with the leftovers from the Thanksgiving dinner I made while visiting a friend in Florida. He took it to work for "potluck" and they all wanted the recipe. I used more barley than called for as I wanted to ensure a "stew" consistency rather than a soup. I was sorry I could not take any home on the plane!
Very good!! Roasted a turkey, complete with all the traditional trimmings yesterday. Took advantage of the leftovers to make this soup, glad I did. It was so full of flavor, and quite filling. Thanks for a new tradition for Thanksgiving leftovers, Marla.
Was making this with some "Thanksgiving practice" leftovers and realized I only had one can of chicken broth and no boullion cubes (to make broth) so I improvised! Replace two cans broth with one can each of cream of celery and cream of chicken soup. OMIT: mashed potatoes, barley, and gravy. Prepare per recipe, then bake into a pot pie crust. BEST. POT PIE RECIPE. EVER. Will try this as a soup next time I have all the ingredients ^_^ ???
Love leftover Thanksgiving "dump" soup! I used turkey stock that I made with the carcass the day prior instead of chicken broth. I didn't add the cranberry sauce, but I added sweet potatoes. Subbed the barley for leftover rice and added a little salt. Easy and a great way to use up leftovers. Look forward to this soup every year!
This was pretty darn good. I substituted some left over rice in place of the barley and added 1/2 a fresh jalepeno pepper (diced) at the end of the cooking time. Thanks for the post.
Reviewed for PAC Fall 2007 I just KNEW this was a keeper!Its very similar to the turkey soup I make ...the only thing that was'nt included this time was the cranberry sauce. Delicious!
This was delicious. So easy! I can't believe you can use the leftovers in the refrigerator and have such a delicious soup. I didn't have everything left that the recipe called for and it was still great. This is definitely a "keeper" recipe.
